AFCON; Egypt Vs Uganda Preview And Analysis

Egypt hosts Uganda for African Nations Cup, the second game of the group D.

Egypt has always been a powerful African team, always favorite in all African Competitions.

They started this campaign with a draw against Mali and now they will play against the poorest team in the  group, who started with a defeat against Ghana.

 

 

In 2016, the Pharaohs lost only two games (Friendly). After wins against strong teams including Nigeria.

Egypt came to this competition with high expectation and a victory in this game is a great jump to put them in the next round. With players like Mohamed Salah, Hassan Koka or Mohamed Elneny, we can expect a powerful attack.

 

 

Uganda is a poor African team, without Egypt’s experiment. They started this competition with a defeat against Ghana. It very rare see a good result of Uganda against any good African selection. In my opinion, Uganda is one of the poorest team in competition with Guinea-Bissau, in this so difficult group, I can’t see them doing any point.

Serie A; Milan Vs Napoli Preview And Analysis

AC Milan welcomes Napoli for the 21st round of the Serie A. 

Milan are currently 5th with 37 points, 4 points less than Champions League placed Napoli. They have been in a good form lately, losing only two times in the last 18 competitive matches. During that run they had 12 wins, including Supercoppa victory against Juventus. Both of those losses came on the road, to Roma and Genoa.

When looking at their home form, they have only one loss this season, with that being in early September. On Monday they managed to take a point from Torino, after being 2:0 down at half-time. They will be missing Montolivo and Pioli who are injured, as well as suspended Locatelli and Romagnoli.

 

 

Napoli are 3rd with 41 points. They have the best attack in the league, having scored 45 goals this season, or 2.25 per game on average. They are unbeaten in the last thirteen competitive matches, winning seven out of the last eight. Away from home, they have been pretty solid, losing only against Atalanta and Juventus. However, they haven`t been able to beat anyone from the top 8 on the road. They will be without El Kaddouri, Ghoulam and Koulibaly, who are playing in the Africa Cup of Nations.

 

 

Napoli are solid favourites for this match, but I wouldn`t agree with that setup. They have been in great form lately, and have the most lethal attack in the league, but Milan have lalso been solid this season, especially at home, where they beat Lazio and Juventus amongst others.

Both teams will want a win here, but I think most of the action will come in the second half of the game.

So take Highest Scoring Half : Second. Odd 2.30

Bundesliga; Werder Bremen Vs Dortmund Preview And Analysis

Werder Bremen will receive Dortmund at the Weser Stadion, in the 17th round of the German Bundesliga. 

Bremen finished the previous year actually in style, as the team didn’t suffer defeat in previous five matches in Bundesliga, managing to exit the relegation zone as they now stand at fifteenth position, with three points more than play-out placed Hamburger SV.

However, they are far away from a safe side as the team need to continue performing well in order to remove the doubts about their salvation completely. They’ve taken ten out of sixteen points in front of own fans and know that they need to perform as good as possible in home matches. During the break, Werder Bremen played three matches not impressive a lot overall, as the team had 1:1 draws against Club Brugge and Karsruher, but lost in the most recent friendly match against Braunschweig 1:2.

Werder should be playing in 4-4-1-1 formation with Pizarro as number nine, while Kruse should be offensive midfielder just behind his back. Winter signing Thomas Delaney could make his Bundesliga debut in the midfield.

 

 

Dortmund, on the other side, could have ended the previous year in a bit better style, as the team ended their campaign with three draws in a row, staying to a point taken on the road against Koln and Hoffenheim, but also making a setback in their home game against Augsburg in a 1:1 draw in the most recent Bundesliga game.

After three draws in a row, Dortmund stands at sixth position only, which is three points below the third placed Hertha, but already twelve points behind first placed Bayern. On the other side, they are just two points above out of European places Augsburg and need to get back on the winning ways as soon as possible. Dortmund had three matches during the holiday break, showing some really good offensive performances as the team won over PSV 4:1, Standard Liege 3:0 and in the most recent one, winning over Paderborn 6:1.

Dortmund is set to play in 4-1-4-1 formation with Schurrle most likely as central striker, but also with massive help from Gotze, Castro, Kagawa and Reus as offensive midfielders. Central defender Neven Subotic remains long term absentee without performing so far now being unfit.

Werder is currently just three points above the relegation zone and need to continue their strong form as they can’t count much on points on the road. Therefore, I expect the home team to be pretty attacking, while Dortmund anyway remains a favorite here even though they are missing their star striker.

Both Teams To Score is the option for this game. Odd 1.60

EPL; Liverpool Vs Swansea Preview And Analysis

This Saturday, Liverpool will take on Swansea for their 22nd EPL game of this Season. 

Liverpool is currently 3rd place on the table with 45 points.

Last  Wednesday they beat Plymouth in a replay fixture of the FA Cup with just 1:0. Klopp named a mixed line-up, but they still managed to break their winless run of four competitive games.

In the last Premier League match they played 1:1 at Old Trafford, in a game in which they weren`t the better team, scoring a goal from a stupidly conceived penalty by Pogba and with all of their chances coming after mistakes from United`s back line.

At home, they are unbeaten this season, drawing only three times. They will miss injured Ings, Mane who is away on international duty,  Matip who is still suspended by FIFA, while Clyne is doubtful.

 

 

Swansea are last in the league with 15 points. Change of manager didn`t bring anything new for them.

They’ve lost a lot of games this season; 2:0 against Hull in FA Cup and 4:0 at home against Arsenal in the league (recently),  in a game which they were powerless, and it seemed like Arsenal were toying with them.

They have only three wins since their victory in Week 1, beating Sunderland and Crystal Palace two times.

They will have to improve drastically if they want to stay up, but that seems more and more unlikely. For this game they will be without injured Montero and Taylor.

 

 

Liverpool are clear favourites for this game, and I can`t see how they could not win. Swansea are not a team which plays defensively solid game trying to stay close, but rather trying to outplay their opponents. That brought them only the worst defensive record in the league, conceding 49 goals, or 2.33 per game. Liverpool on the other hand have the best attack in the league, scoring that same amount of goals, Therefore I think that Liverpool will beat Swansea convincingly here to get back to their winning ways and keep connection to leading Chelsea.

They should win by at least two goals here, while I think that the difference could be even bigger.

For me, I think the best bet for this game is Liverpool wins both halves. Odd 2.20

EPL; Manchester City Vs Tottenham Preview And Analysis

This Saturday, Manchester City will host Tottenham in the EPL. 

With 42points, the Citizens are 5th on the table.

Lately they haven`t been very convincing, losing two out of last four competitive games, without scoring a goal in these two matches. First, they lost to Liverpool 1:0, and in the last league game Everton beat them 4:0. It was a game in which City looked powerless, with Everton being the better team and deservedly taking all three points.

However, the result maybe was a little big too high, since Everton scored from every shot on goal. City have only one defeat at home this season – against Chelsea, scoring in every game. They will miss injured Gundogan for this match, while Kompany will be questionable.

 

 

Tottenham are second, with three points more than City. They have been in great form lately, recording seven straight wins in all competitions. The most impressive victory was surely against current leaders Chelsea – it was 2:0 in White Heart Lane. In the last league game Tottenham thrashed WBA 4:0, with three goals from Harry Kane. They will miss Vetonghen and Lamela for thsi game, both injured.

 

 

In the reverse fixture Tottenham won 2:0. It was the game in which Tottenham dominated from the first whistle, and even missed a penalty.

This time the Spurs are coming into the game in even better form, at the toughest time possible for City. However, City has only one home defeat this season, scoring in every game. Also, aside from the last two away games, Tottenham didn`t have a win on the road for eight consecutive mathces. Both teams will need a win here to stay close to Chelsea, and therefore we should see an open game here. City are capable of scoring, especially at home, while Tottenham has one of the best attacks in the league, spearheaded by in-form Kane. I think we will see more than two goals here, and I like the odds for that to happen.

Take over 2.5 goals at full time. Odd 1.80
